R E P L A C 3

Replac3 is a concept which documents my first ventures into acrylic and into considering the unconventional garment a substitution for humanity.

 

Combining traditional pattern-drafting with digital pattern-drafting, laser-cutting, and manual heat moulding, this garment laid the foundations to consider the potential of solid materials and their place around the form.

 

The piece examines our relationship with our own future and how our dystopian projections reinforce a morbid reality of a disconnected and sterile world.

 

This garment reflects our lack of connection, and speaks of a new age of isolation.

The coarseness and the removal of conventional comfort we crave in delicate, tumultuous balance with beauty and fragility.  

The garment is photographed underwater, where gravity is somewhat suspended and the isolation is highlighted.
